Job Listing: Yo, You Speak Brooklyn?

Pardon me, yo, do you speak Brooklyn?

If you do, a couple of nice gentlemen may be interested in employing your spiffy services.


Today Translations, a London-based translation firm posted an ad on Craigslist seeking "Interpreters of 'Brooklyn English.'"

In order to qualify for this position, you must have: "good knowledge of accent, slang, nuances, etc., to meet the interpreting needs of foreign and out-of-town clients who find it an unexpected challenge," the ad reads.

You might want to brush up on the proper spelling of Fugheddabouditshould you be asked, and not for nuttin', make sure you know what to do if someone says "Whatsamattaferu?"

If you are interested in this quite unique position, they would be willing to offer, how do you say, a "couple of clams."
